Professor Schoolman's published works include The Imaginary Witness: The Critical Theory of Herbert Marcuse; Reason and Horror: Critical Theory, Democracy, and Aesthetic Individuality; and he is coeditor of Modernity and Political Thought, a book series in contemporary political theory about to publish its 17th volume. He is currently at work on a new book titled Democratic Enlightenment: The Reconciliation Image and the Emancipation of Perception, which explores the ways in which cinema teaches lessons about the constitution of a highly developed democratic society, in particular lessons about the ideal of reconciliation between national, group, and personal identities and diverse forms of social difference.
